In some states, a judgment roll is required to be filed by the clerk of the court when he or she enters judgment.

In the federal courts and most state courts, judgments are recorded in the civil docket or criminal docket.

     3. Figuratively it signifies the records of a court or office. In Pennsylvania the master of the rolls was an officer in whose office were recorded the acts of the legislature. 1 Smith's Laws, 46.
